Celebrating 350 reviews on MiP

I can't let the occasion of having just uploaded my 350th review, THE RING OF DEATH, by Sally Spencer, pass without comment.

You can see them all on Smik's Reviews - the Full List

When I began this blog just on 3 years ago, I created it so that I would have a place to write my reviews.
[I also store them on Library Thing and have been doing so since April 2007, so there are just over 500 over there. I have an Access database begun in December 2004 with 730 records in it, and my notebooks kept since 1975 have 2998 books listed in them]

But I did decide when I began blogging that I would take the time to write a review of every book I read, even the ones I don't finish.
The act of writing forces me to think about what I like and don't like about a book, and often to do a bit of research about the author, and/or the series it is part of.

Importantly, it is a project I enjoy, so I can't see myself stopping any time soon. I just wish I could read faster!

Congratulations Kerrie. I find the process of writing the review is a good extension to my reading of a book and I can generally remember more about the book if I've written a review about it.

Congratulation Kerrie. I fully subscribe Bernadette's words. It is great fun, a good extension and a way to remember better what we have read. An extra bonus is to find people with whom we share a similar interest in books.
